Schools Roll Out Web Alerts For Parents

Normally, we don’t get e-mail from our schools over the weekend. But this weekend we did, so be sure to check your in-box. As part of the expansion of its new Web site, the Verona public schools have rolled out a system to send you alerts on homework and school activities–to your e-mail address or cell phone.

If you gave the schools your e-mail address on this year’s emergency contact form, you should have gotten two e-mails from the Board of Education this weekend. The first one contains your user name and temporary password; the second has instructions on how to use them.

The instructions are pretty clear, up to the section about how to sign up for teacher- or school-specific alerts. After you turn on your alerts (and change your password), click on the “Edit Subscriptions” button. Set the drop-down box to the school you need, then select the teachers, subject matter or activities you need.

That’s it. Here’s hoping that this saves us from having to once again fill out an emergency contact card on paper next year.
